~Samuel Johnson

We Are Stardust

"In a sense, human flesh is made of stardust… Every atom in the human body, excluding only the primordial hydrogen atoms, was fashioned in stars that formed, grew old and exploded most violently before the Sun and the Earth came into being. The explosions scattered the heavy elements as a fine dust through space. By the time it made the Sun, the primordial gas of the Milky Way was sufficiently enriched with heavier elements for rocky planets like the Earth to form. And from the rocks atoms escaped for eventual incorporation in living things: carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulphur for all living tissue; calcium for bones and teeth; sodium and potassium for the workings of nerves and brains; the iron colouring blood red… and so on. No other conclusion of modern research testifies more clearly to mankind’s intimate connections with the universe at large and with the cosmic forces at work among the stars."

- Nigel Calder, "The Key to the Universe," BBC, 1977

I want

I want to learn how to purr. Abandon myself, have mistresses in maidenhair fern, own no tomorrow nor yesterday: a blank shimmering space forward and back. I want to think with my belly. I want to name all the stars animals flowers birds rocks in order to forget them, start over again. I want to wear the seasons, harlequin, become ancient and etched by weather. I want to be snow pulse, ruminating ungulate, pebble at the bottom of the abyss, candle burning darkness rather than flame. I want to peer at things shameless, observe the unfastening, that stripping of shape by dusk. I want to sit in the meadow a rotten stump pungent with slimemold, home for pupae and grubs, concentric rings collapsing into the passacaglia of time. I want to crawl inside someone and hibernate one entire night with no clocks to wake me, thighs fragrant loam. I want to melt. I want to swim naked with an otter. I want to turn inside out, exchange nuclei with the Sun. Toward the mythic kingdom of summer I want to make blind motion, using my ribs as a raft, following the spiders as they set sail on their tasseled shining silk. Sometimes even a single feather’s enough to fly."

-Robert Maclean

I’m here to collect. They’re going to lose.

- Charlie Sheen

I'm dealing with

“I’m dealing with fools and trolls. I’m dealing with soft targets, and it’s just strafing runs in my underwear before my first cup of coffee … they lay down with their ugly wives and their ugly children and just look at their loser lives and then they look at me and say, ‘I can’t process it.’

~Charlie Sheen

You're either

"You're either in Sheen's corner or you're with the trolls."

~Charlie Sheen

Stay off the crack

"Stay off the crack.
Drink a chocolate milk."

~Charlie Sheen

We're definitely at war

"We're definitely at war. They're trying to destroy my family. I take great umbrage with that. Defeat is not an option. They picked a fight with a warlock."

~Charlie Sheen

I'm on a drug

I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available, because if you try it once, you will die and your children will weep over your exploded body. Too much?

~Charlie Sheen

Your face

Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.

~Charlie Sheen

I'm tired of pretending

I’m tired of pretending I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars.

~Charlie Sheen

I'm so tired

“I’m so tired of pretending like my life isn’t just perfect and just winning every second, and I’m not just perfect and bitchin’ and just delivering the goods at every frickin’ turn.”

~Charlie Sheen

These resentments

These resentments, they are the rocket fuel that lives in the tip of my sabre.

~Charlie Sheen

I'm extremely old-fashioned

I’m extremely old-fashioned, I’m a nobleman, I’m chivalrous.

~Charlie Sheen

Clearly, I have defeated

Clearly, I have defeated this earthworm with my words – imagine what I would have done with my fire-breathing fists.

~Charlie Sheen

You can't

You can’t process me with a normal brain.

~Charlie Sheen

Lead by example

"Lead by example and teach your kids right and wrong. If my right and wrong is a little bit different than anybody else, then my kids will be different too."

We are so accustomed

"We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others, that in the end, we become disguised to ourselves."

~Fran├žois de la Rochefoucauld

Well

"Well, life all comes down to a few moments. This is one of them."

~Charlie Sheen

Every plan

"Every plan I have is the best plan in the room."

~Charlie Sheen

The run I was on

The run I was on made Sinatra, Jagger, Richards, look like droopy-eyed, armless children. [...] I expose people to magic. I expose them to something they’re never going to see in their otherwise boring lives. And I gave that to them. I may forget about them tomorrow, but they’ll live with that memory for the rest of their lives, and that’s a gift, man.

~Charlie Sheen

I am grandiose

“I am grandiose because I live a grandiose life; what's wrong with that?”

~Charlie Sheen

I think

“I think people misinterpret my passion for anger.”

~Charlie Sheen

The basis of shame

"The basis of shame is not some personal mistake of ours, but that this humiliation is seen by everyone."

Political language

~George Orwell

Those who make

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible
Will make violent revolution inevitable.

~John F. Kennedy

Whoever undertakes

"Whoever undertakes to set himself up as judge in the field of truth and knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods."

~Albert Einstein

Ideologies

"Ideologies separate us.
Dreams and anguish bring us together."

Yesterday is ashes

Yesterday is ashes.
Tomorrow is green wood.
Only today does the fire burn brightly.

- Eskimo Saying

If

If your inner energy is misdirected, so will your whole life be.

~C. Astrid Weber

If we don't change

If we don't change, we don't grow.
If we don't grow, we are not really living.
Growth demands a temporary surrender of security.

Life is

"Life is either daring adventure or nothing at all."

~Helen Keller

There is

"There is no opponent."

~ Bruce Lee

Empty your mind

"Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend."

~ Bruce Lee

Faith is

"Faith is a state of mind that can be conditioned through self-discipline. Faith will accomplish."

~ Bruce Lee

to experience oneself

To experience oneself honestly, not lying to oneself, and to express myself honestly, now that is very hard to do."

~ Bruce Lee

To be

To be is to be related.
To isolate is death.

~Bruce Lee

Knowledge in martial arts

"Knowledge in martial arts actually means self-knowledge. A martial artist has to take responsibility for himself and accept the consequences of his own doing. The understanding of Jeet Kune Do is through personal feeling from movement to movement in the mirror of the relationship and not through a process of isolation. To be is to be related. To isolate is death. To me, ultimately, martial arts means honestly expressing yourself. Now, it is very difficult to do. It has always been very easy for me to put on a show and be cocky, and be flooded with a cocky feeling and feel pretty cool and all that. I can make all kinds of phoney things. Blinded by it. Or I can show some really fancy movement. But to experience oneself honestly, not lying to oneself, and to express myself honestly, now that is very hard to do."

~ Bruce Lee

Forget about winning

"Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life. Do not be concerned with escaping safely - lay your life before him."

~ Bruce Lee

Learn the principle

"Learn the principle, abide by the principle, and dissolve the principle. In short, enter a mold without being caged in it. Obey the principle without being bound by it. LEARN, MASTER AND ACHIEVE!!!"

~ Bruce Lee

A fight

"A fight is not won by one punch or kick. Either learn to endure or hire a bodyguard."

~ Bruce Lee

Either

Either you understand, or you don't. And that is that.

~Bruce Lee

Any technique

Any technique, however worthy and desirable, becomes a disease when the mind is obsessed with it.

~ Bruce Lee

Just be ready

"Do not be tense, just be ready, not thinking but not dreaming, not being set but being flexible. It is being "wholly" and quietly alive, aware and alert, ready for whatever may come."

~ Bruce Lee

A Good teacher

A good teacher can never be fixed in a routine... each moment requires a sensitive mind that is constantly changing and constantly adapting. A teacher must never impose this student to fit his favourite pattern; a good teacher functions as
